    I'm 14 years old, a girl. my school holidays have just started. I haven't left the house in a week, I'm feeling very lonely. I have friends but if I do meet them I still feel just as lonely. I feel quite empty too. Every time I actually go out things like sounds feel really intense and loud cars, people, etc. Sometimes I just cry even when I have no reason to, or I lay down and overthink and make myself cry I don't mean to I just do. If I get shouted at or confronted by my parents or my brothers I shake and cant breath because I'm trying not to cry. Idk what's wrong, I wanted to know if anyone else feels this way sometimes?
    *i just noticed I spelt advice wrong*

    Everyone does, especially around that age. I haven't been out either. I suffer from social anxiety and get shaky outside - is that what you feel like? I also cry randomly quite a lot when I'm stressed or feeling panicky about something. I tend to feel isolated and lonely because social situations aren't for me. I'm 15 and a girl so if you ever need to speak to someone when you're feeling down then PM me (may not reply straight away but I'll try). Keep your head up There's loads of nice people on TSR.

    You need to talk things over about these feelings with someone you can trust..if not parents then a close relative perhaps?

    These feelings on leaving the house with the intensity of noise could mean a few things: you could be suffering from extreme anxiety in your current vulnerable state, or maybe even a form of autism as many autistic people on the spectrum have extreme sensitivity to noise and traffic and crowds.

    If your feelings and anxiety are ongoing, you must seek help and make a doctors appointment before things get worse for you. At the very least you need help to talk through your feelings with someone who will not judge you, but help you through this difficult time. Many doctors practices have access to counselling services and talking to a stranger about your current issues can be really helpful to ,,focus on what is upsetting you and trying to find a solution.

    Don't bottle all this up on your own, make sure you seek help now. If all else fails there are people here on TSR who will listen, and please know you are never alone.
